>>The Best of Obama’s many Jokes

Posted on: February 8, 2010

Our current President has made a habit of making asinine statements but I sincerely think this one about the new wave of bipartisanship is  one of the most disingenuous yet when he is now willing to talk.  Is it possible the President of the United States, an ex-Senator and an ex professor of Constitutional Law has no idea that bills are  submitted to committees in congress and even given a number?  It is then up to the Chairperson of that committee who is always a member of the majority party to bring the bill forward for discussion and vote by the committee as to whether or not the bill will be sent to the floor for discussion and vote by the entire body.  Republican bills have been in committee and on the shelf since early last year!!

Obama invites GOP leaders to health care talk – Yahoo! News

President Barack Obama says it’s time for Republicans who have attacked his health care proposals from the sidelines to step before the cameras and present their own ideas.

The facts are that the Republicans have had their proposals not only before any cameras that wanted to view them but before Congress, both the House and the Senate, from early last summer!

See below:  if you want more information of these and the Democrats bills or just to refresh your memories on what has taken place please go to the right hand column and cursor down to “Categories” and then choose “Health Care Reform Summary” to bring up all of my posts on this topic.  Below are a few that are good summaries.  BB

>> This is the best! Republican Study Committee (RSC) Health Care Reform Proposal

The Republican Study Committee has introduced H.R. 3400, the Empowering Patients First Act. H.R. 3400 would: 1) make access to coverage affordable for all Americans; 2) make coverage truly owned and controlled by the patient; 3) improve the health care delivery structure; and 4) rein in out-of-control costs, including robust liability reform.

Sen. DeMint’s Proposal for Patient Empowerment Health Care Plan

Posted June 25th, 2009 at 5.32pm in Health Care, Ongoing Priorities. American families would receive $5,000 and individuals $2,000 to buy health insurance if their employers didn’t offer it, according to new health reform legislation introduced yesterday by U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.). In addition to providing families and consumers with vouchers, the Health Care Freedom Plan also:• Expands Americans’ use of health savings accounts (HSAs) to pay for insurance premiums
• Creates a nationwide market for health insurance by allowing consumers to buy health insurance in any state
• Provides block grants to states to develop innovative models for ensuring that  people with pre-existing health conditions can get affordable access to care
• Requires that patients are able to see price information before receiving any medical treatment so that they can make better informed decisions

DeMint says, “We will reclaim the money left in [the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP)] and use it to pay for this over the next 10 years. That’s it. No new taxes.”

“Unlike President Obama and some congressional leaders’ plans to increase Washington’s power over Americans’ decision making process, this bill would give help to those who need it and expand choices for American families,” said Nina Owcharenko, deputy director of Heritage’s Center for Health Policy Studies. Even liberal health care advocacy group Families USA has said the DeMint bill has some merit.

“We don’t need a multi-trillion dollar government takeover of health care to make reform happen,” DeMint said, noting that malpractice lawsuit reform in his bill would help the health industry help cut down on out-of-control health care costs. “We need to move to more consumerism in the health care sector.”

The new bill comes after ABC News broadcasted for several hours yesterday at the White House, giving President Barack Obama a good portion of the primetime to push his health agenda. While the president stressed in a press conference Wednesday that a public plan would not have unfair advantages over private insurance plans, DeMint said Obama’s claim “is not true.”

“A government option will replace private health insurance — there is no question about it,” he added.

The best part of Obama’s jokes are the fact that he is still under the illusion that all he needs to do is continue READING some writers colorful comments, in his smooth, smiling, clever way, off his two teleprompters and that those people he fooled the first time around, and who voted for him, still believe him.

By summer who in their right mind, in his own party, are going to want him out campaigning for them, knowing that the last three times he’s campaigned for some Democrat they have lost?

He is losing ground within his own party and with the people who voted for him. The joke will be on him

What’s the old saying, “You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool ALL the people, all of the time”?

LOL Yes that too is one of his “jokes”. The creature should be impeached for stupidity! BB

Should add solid post! Looking forward to reading your next post!

Thank you. I am just an old Broad who has a low tolerance for stupidity and in my 68 years I have seen one whole hell of a lot of it from our governing bodies where ever they are. I have been banging my head against this group for 50 of the 68 years and getting nowhere. But thanks to Obamanation the giant is awake. We the People are finally looking at those in power and seeing what is happening. If Obama had not been elected the stuff would have continued to flow out of Washington and City Hall all over us.

So, Hail to Obama! May he continue his Blundering Crusade! They say a leader always arises in time to save a nation. In this case it is certainly true because Obama came and We the People woke up! BB
